About the home
The church was converted into residential dwellings in 1994 and consists of three houses - the Tower, the Nave and the Chancel. The Chancel still retains the large East window just beyond the alter area, which is now one of the many features adorning this unique house.
Much of the original stained glass has been retained in all the windows, especially the magnificent East window, which overlooks the Purbeck Hills.
